Chocolate Fudge

Melt in your mouth Chocolate Fudge is hard to resist! This easy to create chocolate treat is a morsel of deliciousness that makes it hard to eat just one!!

This easy recipe does not require a candy thermometer and can be made in minutes.

Then just let it harden for a couple of hours and enjoy!

 

Before starting to cook the fudge I greased an 8 x 8 inch baking pan.

Then I placed a medium sized sauce pan on the stove, added a half pound of butter and turned the heat to medium.

Next I measured in some evaporated milk, brown sugar and cocoa.

I occasionally stirred these ingredients together until the butter had melted.  Once the butter melted I stirred it continuously until it started to bubble.

When it started to bubble I stopped stirring and allowed it to boil for 6 minutes.

After 6 minutes I removed the fudge from the heat and poured it into a large Pyrex measuring cup.

Next I gradually added in 2 1/2 cups of icing sugar while I continued stirring.

I stopped stirring once the icing sugar was fully integrated into the fudge.  Crush as many icing sugar lumps as you can if you have not sifted it first.

At this time you could also add in some chopped walnuts if that is how you prefer your fudge.

I scraped the hot fudge into a greased 8 x 8 inch baking pan and allowed it to cool and harden for a couple of hours.

Once the fudge was hard I inverted it onto a cutting board and used a sharp knife to cut it into squares.

Melt in your mouth Chocolate Fudge  is a smooth, creamy treat that will satisfy your sweet cravings!  Serve it up and be ready for it to disappear quickly!!
